Subject: Recipe for Pollo Relleno

Hello Uncle Phaedrus,

There is a Cuban restaurant in Boca Raton the makes the best Bistec de Pollo Relleno and Arroz Relleno that I've had.  
Tried reproducing them at home without much success.  Would you be able to get the recipes for me?  
The restaurant is Padrinos,  20455 State Road#7, Boca Raton, Fl., 33498.

Thank you,


Hello Robert,

Padrino’s menu is here: AllMenus

I had no success with the Bistec de Pollo Relleno, but their recipe for Arroz Relleno is here: Sun-Sentinel

Dream Whip Recipe

I am looking for a recipe from the very late 60's or 1970 from Dream Whip.

Mixed crushed pineapple with dream whip and put that into sugar (waffle) cones.
Then you stacked pineapple slices on a cookie sheet, spreading dream whip between 
each pineapple slice and then spread dream whip on the top of the last pineapple slice.  
I think the stack of pineapple slices was four slices.  Then you attached the filled 
sugar cones to the frosted pineapple rings creating a sunburst effect.  This was then 
placed in the freezer until frozen.  When it was frozen you cut between the cones 
creating a hand help frozen treat.

Thank you,

Hello Pat,

I see that you’ve had requests for this recipe on message boards for several years with no success. I also see that you said at one point that the name of the dish was “Hawaiian Sun”. See: Yahoo


Pat, I cannot find any mention of this dessert other than your own requests. You might try writing to Kraft. The only other suggestion that I have is that it might be in this cookbook: “Sweet Endings from Dream Whip Whipped Topping Mix” by General Foods. I don’t know for sure that the recipe is in that cookbook, but it might be. You can get a used copy for as little as one dollar from Amazon. See: Amazon

I’ll post this on my site. Perhaps a reader is familiar with it.
